    The instructions for this product are terrible and make little or no sense. The “chapters” follow no logic and it was written by someone who does not speak fluent English as seen by the multiple spelling and grammar mistakes.

    Though I was able to get the basic features to work with this alarm, I was not able to program the phone features. You cannot remotely access the alarm by phone if you have a home answering machine.

    On two occations the alarm went off for no reason(not armed) most likely due to radio frequency interference.

    The entire unite shuts off without an alarm sounding if you simply unplug it from the wall, so I am not sure why it has rechargable batteries.

    Nobody answers the toll free customer service number and they have yet to respond to my voicemail.

    There are a lot of instructions on this product, although complicated at first, if you follow the instructions correctly and take your time to read them, it will work.

    The package come with the included sensors already paired with the base, so, all I needed to do was to change the passwords and include my phone numbers.

    When it calls me, I can hear what is going on ONLY if the alarm is in the silent mode, since it has a pretty loud noise coming from the base (where the mic is).

    The door sensor works pretty good, every time I forgot to disarm, it goes off. The motion detector, it is not the most reliable, but it also works, I believe the reliability has to do with the fact that it seems to read the environment every 5 seconds or so.

    I live in a small apartment, and I don’t know what is the actual range of these devices and cannot say if they work well in large houses/apartments.

    So far, it is working OK.

    This is Great, easy to setup and use. Only thing missing is it being able to link to a wired Siren.

    The door sensors don’t respond with a full out alarm until the door had been opened 3-4 times. The motion sensor did not sense any motion until I was within 8 feet and standing directly in front of it and then only “twirped”. The alarm did not go on until I stood 3 feet in front of it and waved my arms frantically. When the alarm does call your phone number to report a break-in, it does not let you listen to what is going on in your home like it is supposed to. The door sensors were very difficult to program. The instructions do not tell you that you have to remove the batteries out of each door sensor as you program another door sensor. The remote controllers quit for some unknown reason and each one had to be reprogrammed before they would start working again. I wasted 2 days trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and spent an hour on the phone with tech support. This system will be returned to the company I purchased it from.

    The bottom line is, by the time this security system would have alerted me to an intruder, I would be dead and all off my belongings stolen.

    Nothing like a good pit bull for security.

    You dont need to be a NASA scientist to install it. Just read carefully the instructions before use it. that’s all I did.

    About the system is good enough to keep safe my office. It works great and I have no problems with it. Is not the best system but is affordable and a good complement to your business security officer guard.

    This system is very nice. I have 3 sensors in different rooms and one door sensor. I bought 2 sensors seperately. The thing I like about this system is when I am away it will call me if there are any intruders. So this system will enhance your security. The only think I did not like about this system is that the directions are difficult to understand. It took me 15-20 minutes to set this up to call and buzz if triped. I would recomend to a friend.

    The purchase of this product was a knee jerk reaction/purchase to being broken into last fall. The choice of having nothing vs having to subscribe to an alarm service was not pleasing. A relative has a similar DIY alarm system and said they were happy with it and this provided a middle ground.

    As stated, the instructions are a little hard to digest at first, but once you understand it, it’s fairly easy to program the unit and sensors. (The picture shows the alarm having an extendable antenna as well as the sensors, but the unit received did not have any.)

    The supplied no name batteries didn’t last very long. The one motion sensor that is in a high traffic area died with in 3 months and the replacement battery is not doing so well (brand name). So don’t be surprised if you have to replace the 9V battery twice or three times a year in high traffic areas. The remote control battery is an odd ball size that I only found at Radio Shack (didn’t look online, it was actually stocked). I purchased extra motion sensors and the door sensors I have not mounted yet. Keep extra batteries for the sensors around and check the sensors that they are working.

    The unit is suppose to have a battery backup, but I have yet to see how that works. If you have to manually switch it over, then it’s pointless (only skimmed the manual). I unplugged the unit expecting it to keep “alive” and it went off. If I want it to last/work during a power outage, I might as well get an uninterrupted power supply they use for computers. Also, when the unit is plugged into the phone line and you are using it, it makes a beeping or chirping noise that is heard. If the phone is plugged into the unit, it actually hangs up on you! Factory says this isn’t right, but I don’t want to sent it back and NOT have protection.

    I purchased two units, giving one to a friend who has experienced multiple break-ins. Since then, he has been broken into once since it was installed. The unit did call him and his kids and he called me to check his home (less then 5 min way). He also did not use the door sensor, only relying on the supplied motion alarm. The alarm will scare people off, but be warned, there is still time between activating and actually getting someone there- at least 5-7 min or more. If you want a faster response time, then pay for a monitored alarm service. (Or purchase the external siren to alert neighbors quicker.) Once I walked into my house forgetting to disarm the unit with the remote control, it went off using the motion sensor and called me with in 5-7 seconds of going off. I test my sensors at least every 3-4 months to make sure they set the unit off and to make sure it calls me.

    I have experienced one false alarm. The unit went off and called. Upon inspection of home, the unit reset it’s self (I didn’t memorize all the codes for remote operation)- all doors and windows were secure. Unit was still armed when entering (used remote to disarm). It is unclear if it was a malfunction, or if the motion sensors detected a movement. We have never had any issues with drapes and heat vents in the past, but we suspected it. Unless someone was trying to jimmy a sliding glass door and brushed up against the blinds creating movement(?)- but I have not tested that idea.

    It was recommend by local law enforcement that an external audible siren be also used. The internal alarm and unit going off is enough for ‘noise’ inside the home, but for an alarm to work effectively, an external siren is suggested to alert neighbors of any problems. (I maybe ordering more internal plug in sirens or one or two external battery powered sirens.)

    Would I recommend this alarm? Yes and no. Does it work… yes, but not perfectly. Are there better out there, I’m sure there are. Do your research, see what is available. I have it already, so I’m making do.

    (Alarms are just one tool to help secure a location. It is not a substitute for not having good door locks/dead bolts. Next step in home defense is to install cameras to record the exterior and any visitors. That way, intruders ‘risk’ being identified if they try…. Multiple layers of protection will HOPEFULLY deter intruders from choosing your home. And yes, dogs are part of that layer also!)

    PS-

    IMPORTANT NOTE—- IMPORTANT NOTE

    IMPORTANT: When using an alarm system that does NOT call a security monitoring service, DO NOT tell people that. It’s better to make people think it is a MONITORED service. If you tell “friends” and the word gets around, the wrong people could find out. And then the wrong people know that they have “time” before someone actually shows up. Right?
